An Epic Final!

BY HADEEL OBAID

TRG v Parco- Final

TRG batted first in all the important final of the 5th Challengers Corporate Cup. Opener M Faizan gave the team a scare after losing his wicket for just 6 runs. The remaining batsmen however did well to stabilize the innings and recovered quickly. Mohsin Khan, Arsal Ali and Sabih Ahmed were in-form and on fire with impressive innings of 40, 78 and 51 runs respectively. Parco bowlers were unable to make breakthroughs when required with only Khalid Sheikh fighting back with 2 wickets. TRG set a target of 186 runs in 20 overs.

The second innings was a complete thriller! Parco lost opener Ibrahim for just 4 runs. However the team stood strong against an impressive bowling attack with Khalil and Zahid contributing cameos of 24 and 25 runs respectively. TRG bowler Tahir was brutal with the ball, taking 3 quick wickets to stump the opposition. Parco were reeling at one stage before Arshad and Hammad Khan fought back. The duo scored 41 and 53 runs at strike rates of over 200 to put their team on the brink of victory. Despite some explosive hitting lower down the order, the team fell short by just 5 runs.

TRG won by 5 runs.
